COACH GALLIMORE ON ERNST
“Katie Ernst got a lot more playing time at the end of the regular season and saw action in some big games. When you are a club player and a high school player it’s very easy to get by with just your speed. Katie’s big transition has been using her speed in combination with thinking the game. She has learned to be not just a runner, but a complete soccer player. She had a good spring for us and has great potential. We feel she will give us good energy in our attack, and is a strong defender as well.”
